Wow.  We won't see that date again for awhile.  In fact not until the next century.  It's supposed to be a lucky day in the numerology world, which would be nice for a change, wouldn't it..??  I read there are a plethora of weddings all over the world as well, plus lots of New Age ceremonies.

Aside from numerology and New Age hoopla, this day is really about our soldiers: not just the fallen, but all of them, men and women of the past, present and future.  In the UK they had 2 minutes of silence at 11:00am.  That makes it 11/11/11 at 11:00. 

Veterans Day, Armistice Day, Remembrance Day. Whatever you want to call it, it's a very special day to take a moment to stop, bless our service people, and say a wee prayer that someday there will be no more war, or hate, or intolerance.

I took this photo at the VA on a sunny, hot morning on the 4th of July this past summer.  It works just as well for our Veterans Day...
